the fall

Mooring – Avery Wood
Madison Britt

what precedes the fall

of a mending heart

when will guides to whole

an ungrateful truth

less darkness in lieu

what begins the fall

of a healed heart

of which touches deep

in feverish keep

to hold on

what’s after the fall

of a love ridden heart

when grappling claws

slip through silk

yet feigning strength

will undo 

a hardened heart is due
